7 Foods That Can Help Relieve Stress

Unfortunately, most of these cravings are for carbs and sweets, according to researchers at the University of California at San Francisco Center.

While poor food choices like ice cream and potato chips might offer a temporary break from stress, there are healthier options that can offset stress over the long term.

Incorporate these foods into your diet to find an inner calm the healthier way.
